    Summary

    Weeks and months and eventually two years went by. Shane had not changed his mind and neither had Ryan. Which made the ring currently hidden in the Professor’s satchel all that more of an issue.

    How the fuck was Shane going to do this?

    Summary

    “Why are you looking at me like that?” Ryan asked as a nervous giggle escaped his throat.

    “Because I want you to listen to me. You’re not stupid or an idiot or any of the other shitty things you tell yourself.”

    “Then what am I?” Ryan asked, his voice more unsteady than he wanted to admit.

    Shane grabbed both of Ryan’s shoulders, wincing through the obvious pain it put him in. “You’re my friend.”

    Summary

    “We’ll be fine,” Ryan repeats, still brandishing his sandwich in a threatening manner. “Just wait and see. Our kids are going to come back and grow up to be botanists and environmental conservationists.” 

    Annie, the music teacher, rolls her eyes. “Your kids are going to come back with poison ivy and heat stroke.” 

    Andrew protests, “They’ll be wearing long clothes! Because it’ll be sixty degrees! Which rules out heat stroke!” 

    Curly, a kindergarten teacher, nods unconvincingly. “Yup, I bet. We’ll be holding our breaths.” 

    When they all part to resume classes, Andrew stops and tells Ryan, “Don’t listen to them, man. We’re gonna rock this shit, and our kids are going to beg us to take them hiking every week. We’re gonna rock this shit.” 

    “I know we are. We’ll show the others just how totally rad and down with the kids we are, and how we can positively influence their outlook on Earth Science.” 

    Or, Ryan and Andrew, two fifth grade teachers, decide to take their students to a nature center for a field trip and end up falling head over ass in love the the park rangers assigned to accompany them, which doesn't bode well for either of their professional credentials

    Summary

    Sitting in one of the staff lounges at BuzzFeed three things occur to Ryan:
    1) He thankfully wrapped his family's gifts first last night and they all remain pristinely wrapped in the trunk of his car ready to take with him to his parents’ house.
    2) The presents he has for his colleagues look like he's fished them out of the trash.
    3) As if in some cruel twist of fate he appears to have wrapped both Shane and Curly's gifts, both of identical size, in the exact same paper and both without almost illegible name tags denoting which gift is for whom.
